In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation - and each other - as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety.Written by

The actual life raft used by the three airmen in 1942 is on display at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida. See more »
Although the crew spent 34 days in the raft, their hair length at the end of the film is the same as at the beginning. See more »

It could be a great movie pf a fantastic story. Director mess it up. Were they shaved after 20 days adrift? A shark biting a hand and causing minimum damage? Just poor.
One of the views movies I could not finish watching
